Dodge, Kenneth A.; Somberg, Daniel R.
Child Development, v58 n1 p213-24 Feb 1987
The social cognitive performance of aggressive and nonaggressive children was assessed under conditions of relaxation and threat. Aspects assessed included skillfulness, bias, and process. Subjects were 65 aggressive and nonaggressive boys 8- to 10-years-old. Findings were interpreted as consistent with theories of preemptive processing and emotional vulnerability in aggressive boys.
